December 2018

The Mina Justa copper mine project financing, on which S&C acted as counsel to the borrower, Marcobre, and the Project, was honored as “Americas Mining Deal of the Year” in Project Finance International’s 2018 Roll of Honour. The $900 million in debt financing will be used for the landmark $1.77 billion Mina Justa copper project in Peru, and is considered one of the biggest mining deals in the region. S&C also advised on the nearly $200 million sale by Minsur of a 40% stake in its subsidiary, Cumbres Andinas, which owns Marcobre and the Mina Justa project, to Alxar Internacional.
